WINTER BROCCOLINI & CAULIFLOWER SOUP
What’s great about it:
Got the winter blues? Surely this soup is likely to brighten things up. Made on a salt-reduced stock the flavour comes from the fresh broccoli, herbs and toasted nuts. Enjoy!
Serves 4 | Prep time 15 minutes | Cook time 25 minutes
1 leek, sliced finely
1 bunch broccolini, roughly chopped
1/2 medium head cauliflower, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 1/2 cups reduced salt vegetable stock
1 tablespoon thyme leaves
1/4 cup (30g) finely chopped walnuts, toasted, to serve
1/4 cup (30g) parmesan
1 tablespoon natural yoghurt
PLACE leek in a medium-large saucepan pot on medium heat.
COOK for 3-5 minutes until leek softens.
